Anupam Kher doesn’t like Gautam Gambhir’s condemnation of violence against Muslim man, read why!

Bollywood actor Anupam Kher has been a known flag-bearer of the BJP and admirer of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. But despite being a fan of Modi, Kher has decided to openly go against the prime minister’s advice to reach out to minorities. Kher on Tuesday openly expressed his displeasure over BJP MP Gautam Gambhir condemning violence against a Muslim man in Haryana’s Gurgaon.

Kher said that Gambhir should stay away from making such statements in future to please a section of the media. Kher wrote, “Dear @GautamGambhir !! Congratulations on your win. As a passionate Indian it made me very happy. Not that you have asked for my advise but still- Don’t get into a trap of getting popular with a section of media. It is your work that will speak. Not necessarily your statements.”



Reacting to an incident of a Muslim man being attacked in Gurgaon by a gang as they knocked off his skull cap and directed him to chant Jai Shri Ram, Gambhir had written, “In Gurugram Muslim man told to remove skullcap,chant Jai Shri Ram”.
It is deplorable. Exemplary action needed by Gurugram authorities. We are a secular nation where @Javedakhtarjadu writes “ओ पालन हारे, निर्गुण और न्यारे” & @RakeyshOmMehra gave us d song “अर्ज़ियाँ” in Delhi 6.”



Gambhir began to face incessant trolling by his supporters as well as his detractors for his condemnation of the violence. He wrote on Twitter to clarify his earlier tweet, “My thoughts on secularism emanate from honourable PM Mr Modi’s mantra “सबका साथ, सबका विकास, सब का विश्वास”. I am not limiting myself to Gurugram incident alone, any oppression based on caste/religion is deplorable. Tolerance & inclusive growth is what idea of India is based on.”



Kher advising Gambhir to not condemn violence against Muslims is in sharp contradiction of what Modi said in his first speech after becoming the prime minister for the second time.

  1. It’s okay to condemn… but he should have condemned the other incidents as well where Muslims killed hindu in Mathura & some other part. And, if can’t he should atleast such statements and quietly work for the people of Delhi. Period.
